Open access and peer review

A few periodicals with fairly different takes on a recent Associated Press story about open access, PLoS and PLoS One, and Nature's new open review experiment --

Wired News: Web journals take on peer review

Boston Herald: Online journals threaten traditional scientific peer-review system

Washington Times: Internet journals offer researchers quick publishing

Looking at the results of a Google News search seems to indicate that most of the media titles that have picked up this story have focused on the confrontation aspect.

Update:
Chris Surridge of PLoS One discusses the AP article on the PLoS One blog.

And thanks to Mark for pointing out these two links:
Peter Suber of Open Access News caught this too.

Seed went with a more subtle take on the confrontation aspect: "Free, For All: How will the open access movement affect global science?
